Psalms 116:15 – “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of one of His godly ones.”
Jack Everette Hardwick of Loris passed away Wednesday, Jan. 15 following an illness. He was 87.
Born on Nov. 3, 1926 in Loris, he was the son of Mr. Clifford H. Hardwick and Mrs. Oddie Harrelson Hardwick.
Mr. Hardwick served in the U.S. Navy during the last years of WWII. He graduated from the University of South Carolina, and during his time in Columbia, SC, he was saved during a Billy Graham Crusade. Thereafter he sought to serve the Lord and follow His will for his life in every way. He studied at Columbia Bible College and the Dallas Theological Seminary, then was led to Colorado Springs, Colo., where he lived for over 50 years. There he was a counselor at the Christian Home for Children, a founding Board member of the Colorado Springs Christian School, and Manager of the Springs Rescue Mission. He was a devoted member of the Southside Bible Chapel.
The family would like to express deep appreciation to his many friends there, and others in Colorado Springs and across the country who continued to sustain and uplift him after his return to South Carolina in 2013. Here he enjoyed family, and old and new friends, especially at Summit Place, during a very active and fulfilling year.
Survivors include his sister, Rebecca Hardwick McQueen, and two nieces, Cheryl McQueen and Julie McQueen, all of Loris.
In addition to his parents, Mr. Hardwick was predeceased by his brother-in-law, Charles P. McQueen.
Funeral services were held at 2 p.m. Friday, Jan. 17 in the Hardwick Memorial Chapel with Dr. Jim Mezick officiating.
Memorials may be made to Southside Bible Chapel, 1725 Wahsatch Avenue, Colorado Springs, CO 80905.
